Forty-Nine of Three
Autonome beeldende kunst
Within my artistic practice, I focus on notions of displacement caused by migration and how it affects the concept of home and language use. My research has manifested itself in three topics: displacement and the concept of home; displacement and the current discourse; and displacement and solidifying of memory. Each topic is represented by an art piece. The concept of home is shown within a video, whereby the original and new home locations are blurred. A wax necklace that slowly changes form results from a research on the solidifying of memory. And, finally, a dictionary that explains how language and the use of it changes in response to emotional connotation.
